Governor West will call upon District
. Attorney McNary to withdraw the Uni
versity of Oregon referendum cases
which have been started anew to enjoin
the Secretary of state from placing
these measures on the ballot. He alsc
declares he Is satisfied that further
proceedings In these cases will jeopard
ize the chances of the two higher edu
cational lnsitutlons of the state, the
University of Oregon and the Agricul-
tural College, in securing passage of
Dills to establish a mlllage tax to raise
revenue for the institutions.
The Board of Regents of the Univer
sity of Oregon probably will Issue
statement In the near future that in
event they win the referendum ease and
the mlllage bill passes they will
not aek for the appropriation made by
the last Legislature, but they will
waive these appropriations and make
no effort to profit by them.
The foregoing facts became known

Governor to Take Action.
The Governor announced on his re-
turn from Portland that he will call
on the District Attorney in a few days
to withdraw the new suits. When the
boards of regents of the two Institu

few weeks ago the University of Ore-
gon regents, in a separate meeting,
passed a resolution requesting the Gov
ernor to call on the District Attorney
to start new suits.
The Supreme Court had decided In
prior suits that S. H. Friendly, a mem
ber of the University of Oregon Board
of Regents, could not bring such suits
as a taxpayer.
Following recommendation In the
resolutions, the Governor made the re
quest to the District Attorney. Dis
